BEAUTY: 6 easy ways to go from mama-ravaged to rockin’

by Emily Crawford

Kids. They love to party all night. And then they love to party all day too. Yup, they’re suckers of dream time.

However, even if you feel like a chewed up old shoe, here’s how to trick everyone into thinking your bambinos always sleep through the night.

1. GO FOR GLOW

Apply a highlighter or an illuminiser to the high points of your face, along with a touch on your brow bone. You can use a brush or your finger for this. A brush works best for powder, and your fingers for a cream product, so keep this mind. Always add the tiniest amount of highlight to the tip of your nose for a hot mama look.

2. OPEN YOUR EYES

Open up your eyes by using an eyelash curler, and swirl some mascara on for wider more awake eyes. You can use a lengthening mascara, or a volumnising one, or both! Rimmel London and Maybelline are great options, as well as Too Faced.

3. PERFECT YOUR SKIN

Apply a BB cream or powder foundation swiftly and quickly – bonus points if you use your fingers. You’ll look fresh and dewy. Just quietly, Napoleon Perdis do a bomb BB cream.

4. MOISTURISE

Begin with applying a healthy dose of moisturiser and don’t be afraid to mix in some face oil for an extra glow. Being tired can leave you with the appearance of dry or sallow skin, and hydrated skin equals gorgeous skin. Try a Rosehip or Jojoba Oil.

5. ROCK A LIPLINER

Apply some lipliner to your entire lips and swipe on a clear lipgloss – simple but very effective. Try a nude shade that is similar to your natural lip colour, so you won’t have to reapply for hours!

6. HAIR UP + GO!

Pull your hair up into a stylish top bun or a sleek pony tail, pop a bottle of H2O into your handbag and take on the world!
